Banks Emblem Removal!!

Ok guys. I'm taking all of the Banks stuff out of my truck today and going to switch to SCT with custom tunes. My question is this. How do I get the Banks emblems off my fenders without damaging the paint? Never had to take any off before. Appreciate any info available.

WD-40 works great to get the sticky crap off.

Congratulations on your recent awakening! Like Patrick said WD will work wonders on that sticky stuff. Any cleaner that contains citrus works good also.

warm them up a little with a heat gun or hair dryer, it will soften the glue a bit so it won't take the paint with it

I would remove them slowly by hand, and then use a bug/tar remover to remove any adhesive residue. Then wash those areas with regular car wash soap and water to remove any leftover cleaner.

Biggest thing I would be concerned over is how long you've had them on, if it has been awhile and the vehicle is in direct sunlight, you mght have an issue with sunfade. Eventually the spots will fade, but you might notice 'em for a bit.
